    Limited to only 500 pieces, the Jaques 3.5 in. Staunton Chess Set Mahogany Box is one of the finest collector's items a chess aficionado could have. The beautiful keepsake mahogany box is lined with cushions handmade from premium English leather. Inside the lid is a certificate of authenticity bearing the signature of none other than Mr. Howard Staunton, the first British chess World Champion who loved the 1850s pattern so much that he lent Jaques of London his name. The enclosed chessmen have been handcrafted from boxwood and jet black ebony and feature a 3.5-inch king. You won't find a set with greater attention to detail than this from Jaques of London, the gold standard in chess.
